Liz Truss, the Tory leadership frontrunner, said British workers needed “more graft” and suggested they lacked the “skill and application” of workers from other countries, a leaked audio recording revealed.
Truss, who at the time of her remarks was the No 2 at the Treasury, was also attempting to explain the difference between London and other regions in the UK, and suggested the disparity was “partly a mindset or attitude thing”.
We’d like to hear how people in different parts of the UK feel about these comments.
